'SERENITY' IN THAILAND!
Soul Excursions is off on an adventure of a LIFETIME in Thailand! The week before we head to Dubai, we're stopping in Thailand to take in wonders untold and cuisine beyond what we can imagine. Welcome to the SERENITY experience in Phuket, Thailand, where you unplug from tech, connect with nature, release fears, resistance, hesitation, inhibitions and shrinking to peel back the layers to your centered, peaceful, tranquil and SERENE SELF... the True Self, the Blissful Self. Welcome to
The Great Buddha of Phuket
Sunday, March 12, 2023 @10 AM
We start off Monday morning with our spiritual practices of prayer, meditation and praise and head off to the amazing BIG BUDDHA of Phuket! The official name of the Great Buddha is Phra Phutta Ming Mongkol Eknakiri which means "the Cherished Auspicious Lord Buddha atop Nāga Hill". The name is a blend of native Thai, Sanskrit, and Pali words – the first element Phra Phutta (Sanskrit varabuddha) means "Lord Buddha"; the second element Ming Mongkol means "cherished and auspicious"; the third element Eknakagiri (from Sanskrit/Paliekanāgagiri) means "atop Naga Hill".
Your registration includes our visit to this most sacred and venerated Buddha.
Ethical Elephant Sanctuary
Tuesday, March 14, 2023
(You'll receive the exact pickup time for our group tour at the
ALL WHITE WELCOME RECEPTION on Sunday evening in Phuket, Thailand.)
Mud, water and elephants! The ethical elephant sanctuary we'll be visiting is home to the gentle giants of Thailand. Elephant numbers in Thailand are diminishing, as they are around the world, due to habitat shrinkage and other factors. Ethical elephant sanctuaries see to the care and nurturing of these wise companions. We'll be splashing with the elephants so bring your swimsuit and get ready to be muddy!
Your registration includes our group excursion to the Elephant Sanctuary.
